Should we add the characters' ages? The info is in the game, but it's Dummied Out and thus its standing as canon is dubious.

I don't see why not, unless something comes out that directly contradicts it.

Can't help but notice that people have been putting all of Grima's tropes from this game on the Awakening character pages. That's an extremely awful idea, because that page is now full of untagged spoilers for a completely different game. Any objections to me migrating the relevant ones over?

That Awakening character page is already Spoilers Off and I'm pretty sure policy prefers a single character entry. No migration is required.

Yes, the page is Spoilers Off. Which means that people will go there having beaten Awakening and get hit with an eyeful of untagged Echoes spoilers. And source on that policy? Because it's very inconsistent with the actual usage I've seen. (The Fates pages have tropes on their Amiibo and Awakening trio entries. Super Smash Bros. isn't a page full of redirects. Zeke always had tropes on this page even though he's Camus. Etc.)

I think the policy is one of those unwritten rules enforced by Word of Mod; I'm pretty sure it's a thing, but don't have a source. Might be worth a trip to Ask The Tropers to clarify.

The amiibo in Fates are pretty clearly established as Alternate Selves of the original characters. The Awakening trio entires for Fates could probably do with being folded into their Awakening entries.

The Smash Bros. characters are considered separate incarnations along the lines of AU counterparts and have Smash-specific gameplay tropes, hence their own entries.

Zeke could go either way due to his amnesia. I'm not exactly familiar with Camus's character, so I can't make a judgment call here.

Well, since we now have Word of Mod that the policy is actually multiple entries, I'm going to fix the page.

Cool. Go ahead.

As much as I'd rather not to because the game isn't even out yet in the US, I think we need to make this page Spoilers Off. There are several Walking Spoiler characters (Conrad, Forneus, and Grima (entry doesn't exist at the time of writing and it would just link to Characters.Fire Emblem Awakening Grima And The Grimleal, but it needs to be there and the name alone is a huge spoiler)) and a couple others with a high amount of tagged entries (Alm, Celica, Zeke).

I'd second that it seems pretty likely that we'll have to do that.

So Celica's princess identity isn't a spoiler in the remake (it's made clear in the prologue), but we still have enough spoiler tags to make Spoilers Off necessary.

So are we doing this? It's been more than three days and nobody else has spoken up.

Let's do it.

Done.

Also made some other changes to compensate for the tags' removal, plus some other stuff. For example, I'm pretty sure Conrad isn't a bastard.
